.Sobering ..... the Bible is an amazing Book, the Author too! If you do not agree, your argument is with God, as this is His word. He is love, without Him, we as people, cannot have a pure love. We can come close, do good things, etc. Even with Him we can miss it, but then can be quick to get right back to His kind of love. Pure, no strings attached, even a love unto death, as stated in Revelations. It is a WIN WIN with Him.
